Adderall - My daughter and OCD?

I was wondering if anyone can help with this. My daughter is 11 and is on 40mg Adderall daily (1 dose in the AM.)

She has insomnia which I understand is a side effect of the drug.

My question is she seems to be developing an OCD type behavior. She cleans her room (which is not an easy task) but instead of throwing trash in a nearby trash can she stuffs it in a back pack in the back of the room or keeps it in boxes in her closet.

In my web searches I have not seen anything linking adderall/adhd with OCS type behaviors.

Any insight would be appreciated.

Welcome Ru!
Yes, stimulants can definitely exacerbate obsessive traits. More, other meds might help or meditation & behavioral therapy instead of meds.
